We told you, 2018 was a year rich in opportunities and crucial connections for WaxUp Africa. Establishing links with Uniwax, the mainstay of the production of authentic 100% made in Africa wax fabric, is one of the key opportunities of which we are grateful. Yes, UNIWAX! No need to draw you how impressive this is for us who started a few years ago, passionate, of course, but far from imagining how far this passion would lead us.
While this may be a bit impressive to us, in reality, it is a step we are ready to take and which makes us all the more determined to move forward. Ideas, projects, never cease to be born. Our vision is refined and consolidated and we know that the means to achieve it are in our hands.
A meeting in the heart of the source
During our trip to Côte d’Ivoire last October, we had the opportunity to be received at the Uniwax factory, reference in the Made in Africa wax textile sector since 1968! We went through the various production areas of the plant and could understand and attend the different stages of production, inebriated by the smells and sounds of the machines. Everything live, so amazed and admiring! From the rolls to the printing techniques. The aisles adorned with sublime wax fabrics, some in production, others finished and ready to be shipped. The scale of this establishment is breathtaking!
This immersion, even closer to the source, allowed us to better understand all the work and know-how that went into producing this emblematic fabric. It is truly a product of quality and exception!
The authentic wax is undeniably a high-end product! We said it, say it again and will continue to say it. It is a treasure that continues to enrich our African continent. A wealth perpetuated by authentic factories like Uniwax and other determined and ever stronger players in the face of a fierce and unfair competition.
